Dear *|FNAME|*,

Another year is upon us with many exciting plans for 2017. This year, we are proud to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the legendary Krugerrand, the most widely traded and most recognized gold bullion coin in the world. The Krugerrand was the world’s first 1oz legal tender coin to contain one troy ounce of pure gold when it was struck for the first time on the 3rd of July 1967, and in 2017 we commemorate 50 years since its introduction. At the time, the Krugerrand was conceptualised by the Chamber of Mines as a means to put gold into the hands of ‘the man on the street”. Read more about the history of the Krugerrand…

A special 50th anniversary range has been extended to include both new metals and new sizes, namely Silver and Platinum, as well as a 50oz, 5oz, 1/20oz and 1/50oz respectively. All the coins under this 2017 range bear a privy mark that celebrates the enduring value of the internationally recognised, timeless South African brand. Join us as we celebrate another year of South African coin-making excellence with this exciting range.
Coming up in 2017

In 2017, we will also be bringing you exciting new products which commemorate significant innovations, people and flora and fauna. We have launched the 2017 Crown and Tickey, which under the theme South African Inventions, celebrates the 50th anniversary of the first successful human-to-human heart transplant. This incredible milestone was performed by a team of surgeons led by Dr Christiaan Neethling Barnard, in the Groote Schuur Hospital in Cape Town on 3 December 1967.

Please note that all 2015 products will only be available until the end of our financial year, which is on 30 March 2017.
The Krugerrand’s golden jubilee
The Krugerrand’s golden jubilee celebrations kicked off at the annual World Money Fair in Berlin on 3 – 5 February 2017. In keeping with bullion coin trends globally (almost all major gold bullion coins have introduced a silver counterpart), we have now introduced a silver Krugerrand. This long-awaited coin, together with the new Platinum Krugerrand where very well-received at the World Money Fair and sold out on the first day.
We have also recently participated in the Annual Middle East Africa Cash Cycle Seminar in Nairobi, Kenya on the 13th and 14th of February 2017. We invite all coin collectors to visit us at international events such as these, should you be in the country concerned.
To place an order for these and other South African Mint products, complete the order form or Krugerrand order form.
